The render farm GarageFarm.NET has recently released a case study featuring the Hungarian CGI and VFX studio, Digital Dust. Digital Dust has been behind some of the production of some notable works in the Game, Advertising, Architecture and Visual FX and Film industries, some of which are cinematics for Planetstorm: Fallen Horizon, and an animation for of the National Parks of Hungary. The team consists of 6 3d generalists that handle a wide range of CG tasks in 3ds Max, Maya and Vray, and source their renders to cloud based render farms.
The case study explores the boutique studio’s work dynamic, the backgrounds and interests of each of the members and their experience with GarageFarm.NET, and how the nature of their work depends on the farm’s reliability, responsiveness and cost effectiveness. The article also sheds light on some aspects of cloud-based distributed rendering that call for custom implementations for 3ds Max, Maya and V-ray on the render farm and the necessity for quick turnarounds in these situations. Of cloud rendering in general, as well as GarageFarm.NET’s service they say:
“I think for a very small project people almost always will use in-house rendering. But when it comes to medium projects, cloud renderings are the best. They are very fast, and if you meet a helpful service like yours (GarageFarm.NET), it is not a pain-in-the-@ss either. And there are the very big projects (e.g. feature films) where the companies tend to invest in a render-farm, since in a project in that scale you usually have lots of scripting, you want everything as your team needs it to be done, and easier.”
